Subtle & elegant design

Incredibly subtle but sophisticated

ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles - with MX279HS measuring just 17.5mm at its thinnest point- thereby minimizing desk space requirements. In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.

Vivid, lifelike visuals

The latest IPS technology with 178° wide-view angles

Designo MX279HS features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit IPS panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both horizontal and vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any direction.

MX279HS uses a 178°(H) / 178°(V) ultra-wide viewing angle full HD IPS panel that eliminates color shift from almost any direction and in nearly all environments.

Built tough and gamer-centric comfortable

Tracer Free Technology improves the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling voltage levels, resulting in 5ms response time so MX279HS provides fluid and clear video playback with silky-smooth motion during gameplay.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design

ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals

With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX279HS augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals.

QuickFit Virtual Scale (patent-pending) for true what you see is what you get

ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the MX279HS, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.

    Premium Immersive Audio

    The Designo MX279HS features ASUS SonicMaster technology. This ASUS-exclusive audio technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver crystal clear, true-to-life surround sound - reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes.
